This old-school action movie franchise has been charging headlong and gathering momentum since its 2010 debut, bringing classic action movie legends together to make corny, high-octane, high-impact features. Even if you're not a fan, you can't deny that they do what they set out to do.
In the last installment, Sly and the Family Stallone went up against villains Jean-Claude Van Damme and Scott Adkins for the murder of Thor's younger brother (Liam Hemsworth). Along the way, they got Arnie back and joined forces with Chuck Norris. That was a lot of fun, but just as Expendables 2 did a lot to improve on the first outing, developments over the last year suggest that Stallone has been doing a lot to improve on the franchise's prior lack of acting weight.
Well, he's only gone and done that by adding Mel Gibson, Harrison Ford, Kelsey Grammer, Robert Davi, Antonio Banderas, and Wesley Snipes!
Now, we all know Han Solo, Blade, Mad Max, El Mariachi, and Frasier, but I was particularly delighted to hear that a somewhat less famous actor, Robert Davi, had joined the cast. Some of you know him as the opera-loving Fratelli brother from The Goonies, but there's a hidden link here. He's been good friends with Schwarzenegger since a viewing of Die Hard, where Davi played FBI Special Agent Johnson. And so the family grows...
While we're waiting for more updates on EX3, why not take a look at our predictions for what Expendables 4 could look like!
Sound off, Fanboys and Fangirls! Are we looking forward to a ridiculous amount of explosions and hilariously bad one-liners, or what? Comments below, and thanks for reading.
